Quinn + Tonik Vol. 13
ready player one
As the world sinks more and more into their phones and social media, it's not tough to believe that at some point in the not too distant future, alternative reality will be more your reality than reality.
A world where everything is learned from the inside of a computer construct. Where you take a vacation without leaving home.
And it's also not difficult to imagine that if Tim Berners-Lee had decided to take ownership of the Internet, rather than give it away for free, he may wield a God-like position already. Let alone in another few decades.
As Net Neutrality looks set to give way to commercial interests controlling the delivery mechanisms and pricing of the information and entertainment we receive, it's also not difficult to see how the online universe could become divided into those with the means, and those without.
Now imagine that the owner of the internet has passed away, with no heirs. And control over the day to day lives of the billions who use it will be passed over to whomsoever can solve a series of riddles based upon 1980's pop culture and video games.
And hope that you watched enough Wargames, played enough Pac-Man, and dabbled enough in Dungeons & Dragons to reach the prize.
Cup of tea or cocktail optional.

Ready Player One directed by Steven Spielberg.
Prepare for sensory overload.
Designed by DQ whilst under the influence of several cups of tea, these sets of hand drawn artworks are in themselves a little video-game esque. Add them to your repertoire and bask in the glory of the compliments which will surely roll in.
